New Firmware V1.03 for K-5!

I don't know where is better to post about this so I made similar post on K-5 forum. (Mod please delete the one you think not appropriate).

I don't have K-5 yet but I guess this is what everyone has been arguing about.
Link:
Latest K-5 Firmware Update : Software Downloads : PENTAX

It says
Changes to V1.03

* Improved the accuracy of auto focus in low-intensity light condition.
* Improved stability for general performance.

Have fun for those who have been waiting for this.

Adam, did you hear about any plans for a firmware update for the tungsten focusing issues experienced by K-r users?

LOL..Adam, since some people said that your reputation will go down if no new firmware issued, I guess now your rep just go up higher.
You're the man!

No, you don't. Nor should you.

Keep those lines of communication open!

Great! Now I know what will be the first thing that I will do once I get the replacement of my stained K-5. I'm hoping I'll have it this week (it's been many weeks since I returned it, Pentax is struggling here in Belgium to keep up with demand).

Alright! F**K YES I believe is the phrase I am looking for here.

Just waiting for my replacement camera to get back from Belgium, then, and I will have a brand new stainless camera that hopefully focuses right. All is well then, and my plans of throwing all my Pentax stuff out the window and buying a D300 have, themselves, been thrown out the window

Nicely done.
Now I demand FW 1.04 that introduces the neat new features from 645D fw1.02 and also adds automatic image rotation on review.

But that's the problem. The K-7 does, the K-5 doesn't. No reason for this was ever given.

Oooh I suppose (sorry for the silly question) that you didn't forget to enable the thing in custom menus?
